What did do today on your loading bench !

Recommended Posts

Deprimed and washed close to <400 .223 cases last night.

Loaded 6 - 10mm mags . I've got some hot loads of 180gr XTP's to shoot up next trip.with 9.2gr to 9.8gr of 800-X, this has to be used up before it gets hot out or they won't cycle.

Also loaded 7 mags of 40S&W.

Did primer pockets last night and sized 482 - 223 cases this morning. Done for the day. I need to clean a couple AR's next, really dislike doing this part. But I should not complain.

Still task avoiding...started reloading...then, buddy calls and tells me he wants to sell his .50 cal (I'm broke, he's broke... any takers? He wants me to help him sell it....) .........hmmmm   distractions........

 

...back to reloading.... trimmed, deburred, and reloaded 100 rounds of quasi-precision .308

Resized (again) 50 late 70's era LC cases I had prepped earlier. Didn't have a head space gauge when I first prepped them and the shoulder wasn't set back far enough. Resized properly and primed with Winchester LR primers. First time I've tried Win primers (in 36 years of reloading) and kind of impressed by them versus the CCI I've always used. Pretty green color  <thumbsup>

Same ol single stage. Get into a rhythm and it went by in bout 6hrs. Lots of blisters and sore hands lol. Biggest time saver... dump lots of brass into big popcorn bowl and spray ur lube, mix and repeat till you think there's enough on em. Not the preferred method for most but for plinkin round it works and i have yet to have an issue. Once do i throw on a movie and get to work with the rcbs universal priming tool.
